Feature request is still being worked upon.
Please do not make the mistake of thinking that you corrected this in production! You should try copying an image from Microsoft Edge and pasting it into Teams! It almost never works, but does work if you copy from edge, paste into paint, copy from paint and then paste into Teams. Something is wonky with the Edge-->Teams image pasting.
This is critical. Further, it would be nice if it integrated with Microsoft Project Online. Currently I assign tasks in conversations, but the conversation rapidly becomes history. It's almost impossible to go back and ensure that the assigned tasks were completed. This was much easier with Outlook.
This item is still being reviewed by the feature team. No additional news to share at this time.
I don't understand how this needs to be under review for more than a day before being declared a critical bug.
You convinced us to shift our company communications from Skype and Email to Teams. AOL Instant messenger honestly had a better ability to locate a message from some months ago and see it in context of the entire conversation.
Outlook is able to do this, Skype is able to do this, Skype For Biz is able to do this.
MIcrosoft's flagship team communications tool is NOT able to facilitate locating and reviewing a conversation that occurred in the past yet 2 months later it's UNDER REVIEW?
Folks, have you any idea how debilitating this issue is? For all intents and purposes, if I cant remember something, it might as well not have happened bc Teams cant facilitate my finding it.
Please allow me to ask, what is the purpose of a messaging tool without the ability to look back historically? Why use a tool at all? Why not just go from memory and send SMS messages? I'm not being sarcastic. I don't understand why this isnt the highest priority task you all have. Currently I have a communications tool that is less effective than placing text files in a onedrive folder for conversation threads. At least those would be searchable.
We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.
Yes, please. An update on this would be much appreciated. We need to determine if Teams will be tossed aside for an upcoming project or if the much needed ability to have channel specific permissions will be available soon.
This is a HUGE bug that makes our decision to interact in Teams rather than email, a VERY big mistake.
Since our switch to Teams, I can't look back through chats and see exactly what was said and when with regard to a particular topic. As another example, I may remember someone sharing a link with me on a particular subject 3-4 weeks ago. When I search on the subject, I find a message that I know was part of that conversation, but NOT the one with the link in it. I want to go see that message in context so as to find the link, but when I click 'Go To The Chat', it just takes me to the very last thing I talked with that person about today, not the message from some weeks ago.
Basically, using Teams to communicate means that you must have a perfect memory because no historical information can be recalled by search! This is a TREMENDOUS burden/failure and it's been going on for months, if not longer. HELP!

Hi everyone — here’s some clarity on our legal compliance.
As of now, Chat history for a Team is stored infinitely and available for eDiscovery/Content Search. So, the answer to your question depends on what you mean by closing the project. If you close the project, but don’t kill the Office 365 Group/Team associated with, everything should be still searchable. You should be able to recall/search for all chat activity that happened within the Team by scoping your compliance content search to the appropriate group mailboxes. The data is not lost.
Please let me know if you have any other questions! You can post a message here or tweet me @skprufo.
" If you close the project, but don’t kill the Office 365 Group/Team associated with, everything should be still searchable." - Does this mean that obsolete Teams still show in the list of Teams which is already cluttered and unmanageable?
We are planning for this! I’m trying to get a date when work will start. But it is officially off the backlog. :-)
There is significant need for an easy way to quote messages.
Teams conversations work well for two person conversations, but in a typical multi-person conversation, Teams falls on it's head because there is no reasonable or valid way to reply to a message that isn't the most recent message in the conversation.
Suppose this simple scenario:
I say: We should write an app
You say: I think it shold be a Universal app
John Doe says: I think it should print Hello World on the screen
Now I wish to reply to your comment about the app we're writing being a Universal app. So I try the logical things:
-Look for a quote button - NOPE
-Left click message to see if additional buttons appear - NOPE
-Right-Click the message to copy it to clipboard - NOPE
-Double-click text of message to see if it selects msg text - NOPE
-Try to select your msg text with mouse - QUIRKY AT BEST
At this point I'm out of ideas, 3 other people have since chimed into the conversation so I need to read that to see if someone already said what I was going to say. It turns out they didn't but your message that I'm STILL trying to respond to has scrolled off the page so now I have to go look for it because I was unable to respond efficiently with the functionality provided.
Ultimately, with great agitation, I have to manually type out something to you like: @You With regard to your suggestion about the app being a Universal App, I think...blah blah blah. Then I go back to try to catch up on the remainder of the conversation and repeat the cycle of agitation, all the while cursing Microsoft under my breath and wondering what the heck it is that you guys use to communicate internally, because it surely can't be this Teams tool or someone would have recognized this significant shortcoming and corrected it long ago.
Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.
I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.
Spell checking in Teams seems to pale in comparison to the intelligence of spell check in Microsoft Edge, etc..
It would be nice to have a more intelligent spell checking capability.
This feature request has moved to the planning stage. There have also been several small updates that have gone out already, as well.
I’ll keep you posted as I hear more about coming updates.
It would be nice to have the ability to search a specific channel or conversation rather than having to search everything.
Thank you all very much for the great response. The survey is now closed. The feature team will be reviewing all the data that was gathered and responded based on the findings.
Again, thank you for helping us make Microsoft Teams the best it can be.
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.
This item is still under review by the feature team. I have no details as to when a decision might happen.
This feature request has been accepted by the feature team and is now on the backlog.
Thank you for all the feedback.
Definitely need thumbnail preview of at least the image files
This feature request is still on in the backlog. No new updates available at this time.
The feature team is still reviewing, there is lots of discussion about this item and I hope to have a decision soon.
